    Woha, I could have sworn it was just one guy with a bunch of stolen GSC clips and pirated unity assets trying to scam some poor fools on kickstarter. Turns out there are several guys.

    I hope this gets funded so they run away with 50k and people learn a valuable lesson

    I suppose you'll be more than willingly to change your mind after update 6: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1577656602/areal/posts/893081
    So basically today "creative" update is a postcard size art piece with no explanation and a 12s video with questionable (euphemism) uselfuness and the rest is the usual babbling...
    I'm done with updates...

    Still no anything close to ingame and they stated they have game on their own engine in pre alpha.

    And that is not even close to adressing money issues.

    Realeasing game for consoles will cost much more than 100k considering they will need to do QA for each platform, ESRB, PEGI and that QA can sometimes be much more than just one QA. In bad situations QA can take months and there is cost to each QA.


    Still smells like bullshit from day1.

    They'll learn. They might not realise it's a scam, but they'll soon lose their enthusiasm for Kickstarter projects if they keep backing ones that never deliver (we're not talking about a project where people are backing it as a means of expressing their ideological preferences, and won't notice if it never delivers).

    The problem is that there's an endless supply of new fools to replace them.

    Ah so they used Unity assets again for their demo...and from the comments even a 5 year old could have made that video with the Unity program and about 300 bucks in assets from the store.
    If they have come out with a cool "we have this cool idea help us develop it" instead of lie upon lie and half assed retarcts and a reasonable and believable goal like "we need 1,8 milion dolars" it could have worked but now I just pity the fool who ever believed them

    Imo i think most of this 60k is just developers themselves paying for whatever money they want to steal. It was especially visible at the end of kickstarter when suddenly 20k happened just like that.

    It would glorious if scamers wouldn't know that kickstarter takes 20% and in the end they would lose money :D
